Rhoda Berlin, MS, LMFT
Description of Counselor/Practice
The motivation and power to change comes from within. People are all constantly evolving, as individuals and in relationships. I see my role as an agent for growth when people are stuck in this sometimes painful and often perplexing process. The therapeutic relationship is a catalyst for discovery and change. I specialize in working with multiethnic, multicultural clients, stressed and/or depressed teens, and people experiencing life transitions. My approach is holistic and eclectic, looking at issues in the context of a person's particular culture and situation. I work with clients to identify strengths, create solutions, and improve life by helping them examine their self-images, gain new insights and perspective, and tap into the courage to try new things. Therapy is goal-directed and focuses on making positive changes in patterns of behavior, thought and relationship. My clients play an active role in setting goals and pursuing creative alternatives in an environment of trust, encouragement and hope.
